I don't have a technical problem with the app. That being said, I do wish tracfone would let you purchase the $10.00 for 1 gig data from the app. Hate going to the computer and logging in and purchasing it there. Sometimes I am not near my computer to purchase it.
Shouldn't have to use data to check balance whole thing is a sham.
The app now works more reliably. The main issue is the widget and how it works. I do remember text message used to be sent notifying the remaining balances and that seemed more reliable than having to be connected to a network to receive updates for minute balances. TracFone is a wonderful company, I believe there is plenty of room for improvement for this app and especially the widget. The app needs to be just for minutes remaining, the other functions are not so useful. I hope TracFone can improve the widget so that it can be useful, thank you.
Why does an app that just loads my current minutes from their server, need access to my contacts, photos, app history... etc??? Just use their website to check your minutes, it's free and doesn't steal your private information. Shame on you Tracfone!!
For the past YEAR I have had nothing but grief with this app especially their widget and account management. Now their recent update locks up the internet when it fails to log in the first time. I had to uninstall this app just to write this review. If you have some money on you I would switch services before this provider crashes and burns.
Helps keep my phone service from expiring and helps manage my phones' air-time. Minus a half a star for initial difficulty at installation, and MINUS two and a half stars for costing a unit per text on top of data usage fees!!! WTF IS THAT!!! Edit* !! Paid for a year added to My service date at fifty bucks a pop and not a @$!#ing thing. Further edit: Widget broken AGAIN, yes again, though WiFi "optimizer" no longer eats battery and bandwidth. So I give up. There is no hope for a truly good app. Paidfor=get
